@scalman, We had all the other outside threats before Korver came and were
losing until the instant he joined the team. Just his threat totally opened
things up inside.
@ Shaybo, we are both right on Korver's first season...the Jazz played the
hardest part of their schedule just before they got him. Also, the Jazz had two
other fine outside shooters in Okur and Williams (who also was great zipping
passes to people. So, Korver was wide open lots. Anyway, don't you remember how
he would disappear against good teams. I was hoping like a lot of posters here
that CJ would pick up his game as the team's deep threat when Korver left, but
that's only happening occasionally.
@ Scalman, I would give up Milsap and Jefferson for Gasol but the Lakers would
have to throw in something to make the money match up. As for Korver, they
picked him up mid-season so I don't think you can use the weak schedule routine.
They were terrible until they got him and something like .667 for the rest of
the season. Also it wasn't like any Jazz player played defense anyway.
More importantly, Alberta and Ontario are going to the brier final. Mens'
curling at it's finest.
It is a complete waste of a season to not give the young guys minutes. Stupid,
stupid waste. Larry would never, ever allow this.
I'm anxious to watch the development of Alec Burks and Derrick Favors. The 2 possible 2012 lotto picks are looking nice about now. The
trade deadline should be interesting.
Lakers wouldn't part with Gasol for Jefferson and CJ, but they might if Millsap
was involved in place of one of the two others. Before the season started, I was
hoping the Jazz might get Gasol's younger bro but Memphis resigned him. I would
also like a Jefferson for Turner trade. I think Favors is getting decent
minutes, but yeah, Kanter isn't. As for Korver, he had a real good game tonight,
but he is still a poor defender. Don't forget that Korver was really good the
first month after he joined the Jazz partly because they played an easy part of
their schedule during that time. And, of course, he was popular for other
Lakers trying to get rid of Gasol, how about Jefferson and CJ for him? I heard
Evan Turner might be available in a trade for Jefferson. There would have to be
other considerations money wise for that to work out but I would make either of
those in a heartbeat.Instead of going with the young guys Corbin is
giving less and less minutes to Favors and Kanter. Corbin is more interested in
his won/loss record than the future of the team.It's good to see
Korver going off after the Jazz kicked sand in his face, he wanted to stay but
Jazz made it clear they didn't want him. How quickly KOC forgot the way the Jazz
turned around when they acquired him.
